Lyrics

Jesus, my Savior, what didst Thou see
Which made Thee suffer and die for me?
I saw thee wandering far off from Me;
In love I seek for thee; do not flee!

O I will follow Thee, star of my soul,
Through the deep shades of life to the goal.
Yes, let Thy cross be borne each day by me;
Mind not how heavy, if but with Thee.

Lord, if Thou only wilt make me Thine own,
Give no companion, save Thee alone.
Grant through each day of life to stand by Thee;
With Thee when morning breaks, ever to be.
